Can I Return a Mattress to Costco After 2 Years? (Do This Now!)


Lindsey, can I return a mattress to Costco after 2 years? This is one of the questions our readers ask a lot. Well, we´ve got you covered.

You bought a mattress from Costco two years ago for your guest bedroom, but now you want to turn that room into a studio so you don’t need the bed anymore. Can you still return the mattress two years later?

Costco will accept mattress returns even two years after it has been originally purchased. As long as you can present a receipt or your Costco membership card, they will accept the return and refund your money.

In this article, we will review the return time frame for mattresses purchase at Costco and mattress returns without a receipt. Additionally, we will cover how to return a mattress to Costco as well as their full mattress return policy.

What Is the Return Time Frame for Mattresses Purchased at Costco?

You can return a mattress to Costco at any time after purchase. There is no return time frame limit for mattresses. That being said, Costco relies on the honesty of its customers to not return items that have been used and worn.

Costco understands that you may need to test a mattress for a few weeks or months in order to decide if it suits your needs.

In some cases, mattresses may be purchased and then never used or rarely used. Years later you may find that you have no further need for the mattress, and it is still in like new condition.

Costco will happily refund your purchase since it aims to guarantee the satisfaction of its customers.

Just remember that normal wear and tear, especially after years of use, is not a good reason to return your mattress and can be considered an abuse of the return policy even if Costco still allows the return.

Can I Return a Mattress to Costco Without a Receipt?

Costco will allow mattress returns made without a receipt present. A Costco associate can look up your membership number in order to get the necessary information about the purchase such as how much you paid and what form of tender you used to pay.

This way you don’t need to worry about hanging on to the receipt, especially if you end up returning the mattress years later.

If your mattress was a gift and you need to return it, you should bring in the gift receipt otherwise you will need to have the person who purchased it for you present at the return.

While Costco accepts mattress returns without a receipt, they do need some form of proof of purchase which can be presented in the form of a membership number.

The only way that Costco will not accept a mattress return without a receipt is if it was not purchased under your Costco membership or if you do not have a Costco membership to begin with.

Costco needs to ensure somehow that the mattress being returned was actually purchased at Costco in the first place.
